OLE Automation: EXCEL not starting

I am using OLE Automation to download table data to a spreasheet. I got everything working, and EXCEL starts and sheets get created and populated with the data. Everything appears fine. When I had my co-workers test it, EXCEL doesn't start up for them, and nothing happens. What could this be?

What FM did you use?

Have you passed your userid by any chance?

I did not pass my userid. I'm not using a standard SAP function module. All my code is custom OLE Automation.

Try having your co-worker open excel first, then execute the program.

I've tried having my co-workers open EXCEL first, and it doesn't matter. They still get nothing. Mine, however, starts when I don't have EXCEL open. If I do have it open, it brings up a new window of EXCEL.
